I long for your salvation, Lord,
with strong desires I wait;
my soul, invited by your word,
stands watching at your gate.
In you, O God, I place my trust.
The world will seek your face,
for you are good as well as just,
and plenteous is your grace!
There’s full redemption at your throne
for sinners long enslaved;
our great Redeemer is your Son!
All peoples will be saved.
